AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Check Assemblies Part File References

Feb 4, 2013

I was wondering is there is a way to select an Inventor part file and see which assembly file or files that is is currently used in ? It would be extremely useful to be able to see a list of all the assembly files which are using one particular part so when modifying the part you would know which assemblies would change.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Proxy Of Workplane Inside Pattern / Inside Part / Inside An Assembly

Oct 14, 2013

There are many examples of creating rectangular patterns, but not many, if any, of interrogating existing patterns.I have attached the files and a screenshot of a rectangular part inside an assembly. The part contains a rectangular pattern of holes and do I get hold of each proxy of the workplane in the pattern?In other words I don't know what to put in the for loop at the end of this code fragment:
If _invApp.Documents.Count = 0 Then MsgBox("Need to open an the assembly document") ReturnEnd If If _invApp.ActiveDocument.DocumentType <> DocumentTypeEnum.kAssemblyDocumentObject Then MsgBox("Need to have an Assembly document active") ReturnEnd If Dim asmDoc As Assembly Document asmDoc = _invApp.ActiveDocument Dim asmDef As AssemblyComponentDefinition asmDef = asmDoc.ComponentDefinition im occurrences As ComponentOccurrencesoccurrences.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic And Analyze Interference

Apr 15, 2012

Is it possible to isolate the interference detected by Inventor? I am thinking something trough the API or ilogic?

When we analyze interference we get a long list from inventor and sometimes is hard to see it. I am thinking maybe to Isolate the two parts that interfere.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Change Color That Interference Analyze Tool Identifies With

Jun 4, 2012

how to change the color that the "Interference Analyze" tool identifies with??

I recently converted from 2010 to Inventor 2011 Pro. 2010 had a Dark Translucent Red which was extremely useful. 2011 has a Light Translucent Red which is extremely difficult to make out ( I have a massive assembly). Identifying these fouls/interferences is vital to my job.

I tried Styles Editor, View Styles, Application/Document Settings, and even part manipulation!

AutoCAD Inventor :: Analyze Sketch - Total Number Of Lines In Loop

Jun 28, 2013

Being all new and complete virgin-like, to ilogic, I would like to know wether it is possible to analyze a sketch (wenn it is being closed)?

What I want to analyze is:

Does the sketch contain a fully constrained closed loop?

Does this closed loop consist only of straight lines?

What is the total number of lines in the loop?

Next fase is:

Create an excel-sheet with the following information:

For each line in this closed loop i wish to add the length of the line, and the angle to the next line (consequently on the internal side of the loop, resulting in angles from 0 to 180 degrees).

AutoCAD Inventor :: Get Snapshot Of IPT File Inside It?

Oct 15, 2012

I'm developing a VB.NET framework 4.0 that must works with Inventor 2013 and Vault.

My *BIG* problem is to obtain a simply image (bmp, jpeg, whatever you want) of the ActiveDocument in Inventor when the user add the file inside Vault (VaultCheckinTop) - my goal is to create a detail technical pdf report and store it in our database.

I'm able to create ALL (get iProperties, etc) but i cannot take a snapshot of the ActiveDocument.

I've tried both Apprentice way and ClientView way registering the old-know "InventorThumbnailViewLib", without success.

I cannot (and i don't want!!) use the VisualBasic.Compatibility method because it's ultra-deprecated, and i cannot use too the VBA scripting because my application it's create in VB.NET.

replicate in "silent mode" at runtime the "Export to Immage" command of Inventor.I have read all similar post found on the net, without success


My scenario is: VS2K10 - Framework 4.0 - Windows 7 @ 64bit - Inventor 2K13 @ 64bit with Update 2 - last DeveloperTool @ 64bit

AutoCad :: How To Draw A Dotted Line To Show Pin Inside Boxtubing

Apr 10, 2012

I am new to Autocad and I want to learn as much as I can. I am working on a drawing of a wheel and a 40mm pin that is inside of some boxtubing. I would like to draw a dotted line to show the pin inside the boxtubing. I click properties and I only get the choices of layer , block and continious . I have Autocad Lite 2005.

Also, I love the dimension tool , but how do I know how wide or long I am making it until I do my dimension , and then it is too short or too long. It don't seem like there is a way to edit it. I know it is.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: File Contains External References Function Fails

Jun 27, 2013

I'm trying to adjust the properties of some block objects in Mspace. When the file contains external references the function fails, when it has none it works perfectly.

Dim modelSpace As BlockTableRecord = DirectCast(M_trans.GetObject(SymbolUtilityServices.GetBlockModelSpaceId(db), OpenMode.ForRead), BlockTableRecord)
                For Each id As ObjectId In modelSpace
                    Dim ent As Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Entity = DirectCast(M_trans.GetObject(id, OpenMode.ForWrite), Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Entity)
                    ent.Color = Color.FromColorIndex(ColorMethod.ByLayer, 256)
Using the above to get all objectid's and filter through them then using:

  If TypeOf ent Is BlockReference Then
                            Dim br As BlockReference = DirectCast(ent, BlockReference)
                            Dim btr As BlockTableRecord = DirectCast(M_trans.GetObject(br.BlockTableRecord, OpenMode.ForRead), BlockTableRecord)
                            If Not btr.IsFromExternalReference Then

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Opening File Gets Stuck At 50% Synchronizing References For 5+ Minutes

May 11, 2012

I have a file that looks like it is going to open nice and fast and then it gets stuck at 50% synchronizing references. It literally takes over 5 minutes for the file to come completely up and ready to work on.

In the file I have an existing ground surface data reference and two corridors (with alignments, profiles and profiles views) that are basic access roads roughly 1200' long each with a very basic assembly. I also have a pipe network data referenced that is just a bunch of pipes that represent existing utilities crossing the access road so I can show them in cross sections. The final thing I have in here are 50' cross sections for each of these access roads.

 why does it take me 5+ minutes to get into this file?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Shortcut File Names With Multiple DS References?

Nov 26, 2012

I have a data shortcut file where i keep my EG surface that now has File Name.dwg [DS] [DS] [DS] [DS]. What's the deal? Has this managed to morph itself into something it's not. It used to have only one, had two for awhile, and now 4 references to the DS (Datashort cut project folder).

Have I done something wrong here to get these wonky file names, would be nice to see just 1 reference being made to my DS Project folder.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Pack And Go - Remove FEA References

Feb 14, 2012

So we are wanting to send on a model to a customer.  I have used pack and go with the following settings:

Copy to Single Path

Model Files Only

When I try and open the newly created files, it gives a bunch of error messages looking for FEA files, as well as missing some OLE links, which is good as I don't want to send on any FEA information with the model, but is there a way to strip that out completely from the model without having to go through each individual file and deleting all of the simulations?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Lost All ILogic References

Aug 22, 2012

My company has many divisions. One division developed a program to automate some designs. They asked me to try it out and it wiped out all references to iLogic in Inventor. The panel is missing in the manage tab, and when I right click to select panels it does not appear in the list. I keep the iLogic browser open at all times and it is gone too.

I tried doing a repair and a re-install and neither has worked. My next step is to uninstall and re-install.

Is there another way to get the iLogic features back in case I have to test something else?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Changing NonParametricBaseFeature Without Destroying References?

Aug 14, 2013

We've written an Inventor AddIn that creates a ClientFeature in a part document using one or more NonParametricBaseFeature objects that get force-fed with the geometry we compute (through a TransientBRep object). The result of this is one solid. So far, this works well enough.

However, we've recently encountered a problem with drawings based on part documents like that: Dimensions (measures) added to the drawing get deleted when the NonParametricBaseFeature gets replaced by a new one, even if the two have the same topology or are, in fact, geometrically identical. I assume this is because the new feature has no relation to the original one and there is basically no way the drawing can know what geometry the dimension is referring to. So far, we assumed the references to geometry in a part document would be something like Solid(0).Face(0).Edge(0) etc, but this doesn't seem to be the case. Otherwise, replacing the feature with a new one that is identical would not destroy these references.

I would like to achieve the following: Through the use of ModelingEvents.OnClientFeatureDoubleClick our ClientFeature gets replaced by an updated version and all drawings referencing this feature get updated accordingly with all dimensions intact, as long as the changes only affect geometry and the topology stays the same.

PS: Currently we're working with Inventor 2013 and 2014, using the .NET API in C#.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Determine Which Components Contain Unresolved References

Apr 30, 2013

If an assembly contains unresolved file references, when I try to open it Inventor allows me to try and resolve this with the Resolve Link dialog. But if I choose to skip all for whatever reason, once I've opened the assembly there's no easy way for me to see which sub-assembly/assemblies contain the missing reference. I have to expand folders, patterns, assemblies, etc. until I find the one with the little question mark next to it. I prefer to work with unresolved links in this way sometimes because it just makes more sense working with the model than a bunch of file paths and file names in the Resolve Link dialog. But it's nearly impossible with large assemblies where the unresolved links may be burried deep.  

Is there a way to list or somehow see which assemblies contain the unresolved links once I've already opened an assembly?
